Ducommun Inc., a money-losing aerospace contractor, said Wednesday that it plans to sell unused real estate in Texas, Oklahoma and California to raise much needed cash. Norman A. Barkeley, Ducommun's chairman and chief executive, told shareholders at the company's annual meeting in Long Beach that he is not sure how much Ducommun would receive from the property sales. He said the proceeds would be used to reduce the Carson-based firm's $67.9-million debt. Besides selling the property, Ducommun is also negotiating to sell its Tri-Tec Engineering unit, a maker of cable assemblies for the computer industry.

Once-ailing Ducommun, a Carson-based aerospace supplier and one of California's oldest companies, which spent most of the late 1980s losing money, apparently has turned things around, according to an earnings report issued Thursday. During the first full year since Chairman Norman A. Barkeley stepped into the cockpit at Ducommun, the company posted net income of $602,000, contrasted with a loss of $19.4 million in 1988.

Ducommun Inc., mired in losses for the last four years, earned $360,000 in its first quarter largely from sharp cost reductions and increased orders for aircraft parts. The aerospace company, based in Carson, said sales rose 4% to $16.5 million for the first quarter from $15.7 million during the first three months of 1988. Ducommun lost $1 million during the same quarter of last year. Ducommun's first-quarter costs were more than $800,000 less than in the first quarter a year ago, said Chief Financial Officer Donald R. Schort, resulting from work force reductions and reduced overhead.
